On Sept. 14, I stopped at Walgreens at the corner of McClure and Knoxville. As I was getting out of my car the door started closing and the bottom corner of the door hit my right leg above the ankle and made a gash in my leg and blood was running all over. I had a package of tissues in my purse and removed them to pat the wound and absorb some of the blood. I walk with a cane and I knew I had to get help, so I proceeded into Walgreens Pharmacy department telling the woman there that I needed help with my bleeding leg. She came to my aid almost immediately, but when she saw my leg, she said she had to get some supplies, returning with a box of antiseptic wet wipes and proceeded to clean and care for my wound. I asked if they could take my insurance card and she said, “No, we are here to help.”
When finished cleaning the wound and putting on a large bandage, she asked if I had bandages like that at home. I told her I didn’t think so and would buy a box. She went to the shelf where they were and brought a box to me. Later I was told her name is Yen.
Walgreens is so lucky to have such a wonderful, caring and knowledgeable person working for them. My thanks to Yen and Walgreens.
